On a planet befouled by evil, in a construct merging vile science with dark magicks he stood gazing over images on the viewscreen.
"He has confounded my plans," the dark figure announced to no one in particular. "He has stood in my way and he will be destroyed."
Several scientists stood hunched over their computers and working on equipment. Dark mages hummed their evil incantations. One scientist dared to speak to his evil master.
"Master," he bowed. "The Conflux of Evil is nearly complete. The portal will soon be opened."
The dark figure grew darker, the air around him befouled by his very presence. "My greatest enemy will soon be my greatest ally. The irony is sweet."
"Great Lord, technically your enemy will not become your ally," the scientist bowed lower. "It will be a hulff--"
"Silence!" With a powerful backhand, the scientist was sent sprawling across the room and into a corner, his neck broken.
"Hmm, he was a good evil scientist, too." The malevolent master snapped his fingers and two beings scurried to take the body away. "Reanimate him, it would be unfortunate to squander such good material. Also, download his brain, his mind would be a terrible thing to waste."
"Yes my Lord." The beings dragged the body out of the room. The zombified scientist's brain would be preserved as data even as his resurrected body decayed away.
The technomages raised their arms as their chanting grew in intensity. The scientists threw switches and turned dials. The humming of the dark machinery increased. Giant arcs of energy leaped between diodes. A rip formed in the air and a tear between universes yawned wide.
A dark figure stepped through the opened portal. "Who summoned me?" Evil Jon said, a vicious grin cracked across his face.
The terrifying tyrant laughed heartily.
"I have," said Galactor, the Evil Galactic Overlord.
